Gene description


PDPN (podoplanin) is a 40-43 kD type-I transmembrane sialomucin-type glycoprotein, also known as T1a, gp36, gp38, gp40, and Aggrus. Originally detected on the surface of podocytes, futher characterization showed podoplanin has a broad tissue distribution, including mesothelial cells, epithelial cells, follicular dendritic cells, and a variety of tumor cells. It has been reported that podoplanin is the ligand of CLEC2 and is involved in lymphatic vessel formation, platelet aggregation, and tumor metastasis. Podoplanin may serve as a useful marker for tumor diagnosis and prognosis.

Strain specific PDPN expression analysis in homozygous B-hPDPN mice by western blot. 
Lung tissue was collected from wild-type C57BL/6 mice (+/+) and homozygous B-hPDPN mice (H/H), and analyzed by western blot with anti-PDPN antibody. Mouse PDPN was only detectable in wild-type C57BL/6 mice. Human PDPN was only detectable in homozygous B-hPDPN mice but not in wild type mice.

Strain specific analysis of PDPN gene expression in wild-type C57BL/6 mice and B-hPDPN mice by RT-PCR. Mouse Pdpn mRNA was detectable in brain of wild-type C57BL/6 mice (+/+). Human PDPN mRNA was detectable only in homozygous B-hPDPN mice (H/H) but not in wild type mice.
